Taste Test: Our Guide to the Best Products at the Supermarket

There are tens of thousands of products on supermarket shelves; let us help you pick the best—in both taste and nutrition. After booting out foods that don't fit our nutrition standards, products are served to a Cooking Light staff tasting panel for blind taste tests. Here are the winning products in a variety of categories.

Taste Test: Sweet Potato Fries

Bake these tasty taters in the oven while the main dish sautés. Half a cup counts as a serving of vegetables.

OUR FAVORITE: Alexia Sweet Potato Julienne Fries, $3.79 (15-ounce package) 140 calories, 5g fat, 140mg sodium. These golden fries deliver full-on sweet potato flavor. With a crisp snap reminiscent of something that's been deep-fried, each baton is a perfectly balanced bite of crunchy exterior and creamy interior.

RUNNER-UP: 365 Everyday Value Crinkle Cut Sweet Potato Fries, $2.99 (20-ounce package) 140 calories, 5g fat, 110mg sodium. Pleasantly salty with a mild, subtle sweet potato flavor that may help pickier palates warm up to sweet spuds. A thick, crunchy coating feels decadent—even naughty—without the fat and sodium.
